- The dual radio design and integrated antenna allow very low cost deployments in remote areas. All that is required is a powered site. The addition of an external antenna completes a full site including coverage sector and backhaul link. The dual ethernet ports allow a second Shadowmaster to be used at the same site to create 3 coverage sectors sharing the backhaul link without the need for any other components such as routers, switches and eliminating the need for expensive equipment buildings.
- Unlike many competitors products, the ShadowMaster can be used as a true repeater. This is only possible due to the dual radio design. Each radio can be set up independently and can take advantage of two distinct radio channels, effectively increasing your backhaul link capacity by 3 times when compared to other 802.11 products functioning in repeater mode.
When needed, both radios can be set up as Access Points on separate frequencies. Because the radios are totally independent, the ShadowMaster can be configured to act as either a:
